Expression of beta 3-adrenoceptor mRNA in rat brain

Br J Pharmacol. 1995 Nov;116(6):2547-8. doi: 10.1111/j.1476-5381.1995.tb17205.x.


The reverse transcription/polymerase chain reaction was used to demonstrate beta 3-adrenoceptor mRNA in rat brain regions. Levels were highest in hippocampus, cerebral cortex and striatum and lower in hypothalamus, brainstem and cerebellum.
